Oregon’s Early Childhood Coalition

First convened in 2018, Oregon’s Early Childhood Coalition now includes nearly 40 state and national organizations working on behalf of kids and families in Oregon.

In 2019, the coalition developed an early childhood legislative agenda that reflected the priorities of its members, including funding for early learning, family supports, and child care. Coalition members helped arrange for tours of early learning sites across the state for legislators to highlight the need for and benefit of programs and services for kids and families. Coalition members engaged their communities in support of their agenda, bringing voters to Salem to testify at hearings and for the Early Childhood Lobby Day.

The Early Childhood Coalition will continue to seek out opportunities to share voices from their communities and educate Oregonians about the importance of early childhood.
